As a girl raised in the hip hop era I was overjoyed to find out style maven June Ambrose was getting her own show. June is responsible for the Shiny Suits Puff wore and the Mary J that was so hood and so fly. She is responsible to emancipating Mimi’s breast from a shirt and turning Jay-z into a grown man burning his jeans and jersey for a more refined grown up look. June is the official stylist of the US version of the X factor and that is great considering she got her start working at MCA Records. June’s show Styled by June, premieres in March on VH1 and the maven finally is getting her just due in the world of fashion.

Last night Vh1’s Love and Hip Hop had their finale and it focused on showing the girls moving forward in their lives. The show was more reflective and positive for most and left the petty fighting in Miami. Chrissy is in heaven being newly engaged as she patches up things with Jim’s mother and the couple along with Nancy headed to the island of Jamaica. Before the trip Nancy performed her single in a club where Yandy foolishly compared it to a Beyonce transformation. Speaking of Yandy she finally admitted to her mentor Mona she crossed the line with Jim and got too involved emotionally. Yandy decided to focus on the upcoming Missy project and her jewelry line. Emily supported Chrissy and continued to want more from her Fab which makes me happy considering the bad advice she was given the prior week. Kimbella announced she is expecting another baby with Juelz and is becoming tired of his shenanigans. The rapper was arrested and Kimbella spoke in frustration over how the relationship was not moving forward. Olivia turned down a record deal for 1.5 because she feels she is worth more. Rich Dollar wisely tells her he has no more money to invest in her career as it’s clear she is dumb is as a box of rocks. The ending of Love and Hip Hop left me wanting more and I cannot wait until next season. What do you think of the finale let us know on twitter.
Tonight Vh1’s Mob Wives aired and I realized the tough talking girls from Staten Island are wearing me thin. There has to be more in life than fighting and arguing either make up or move on but the Karen/Drita situation is past its expiration date. Drita we get it you fought alot, you fought in every bar you and Carla go to drink at now but enough with the stories about throwing hands. There has to be more in your life then fighting also for the record, what happened to you at Renee’s party is no different from what happen to Karen on the rooftop. Karen we get it you will “Keep coming” ok you have the heart of a lion ok but so what. Drita has your mind and you have hers it’s time to focus on some form of talent. At least the Basketball wives and Love and Hip Hop girls try to expand their brands during the show. Carla was her using boring self while looking amazing but I must say she was 100% correct when dealing with Karen about their issues. Renee was the laugh I needed for the night going all Faye Dunaway circa Mommie Dearest with the no crumbs on her floor while clearly having too much to drink. Then there is my new fav Big Ang all about having a good time living life to the fullest. With the way the main cast is acting hopely she will get more airtime because this episode left me wanting. What do you think let me know over at @mediamyxx or @akireshenri
Doing my duties as a Blogger in the know I watch the reality shows that keeps twitter and social media buzzing. This week was no exception as I watched the new episode of Love and Hip Hop. To recap the episode Yandy spent the entire episode saying she was loyal and trying to get the other girls to side with her over Chrissy, Kimbella and Erica continue to play the Who Run the World (video girls) game, Olivia continued to live on denial street and Emily continued to pretend she isn’t stupid over Fab. The best moment of this weeks show is when industry powerhouse Mona Scott-Young explained to Yandy how she crossed the line. While she refuses to see it there is a difference between business and personal. You do not get kudos for being loyal to your client that is your job and if you behave in a personal manner you wouldn’t cross your clients significant others path in the first place. What do you think about what Mona said to Yandy and give us your thoughts on this week’s new episode.
In last nights episode of TI and Tiny, TI had a book signing in LA and took his wife Tiny along with him. To make sure she wasn’t board Tiny brought along her own friends including her friend/hair stylist Shekinah. As the episode progresses Shekinah becomes frustrated with Tiny because she hangs with her “rich friends” and she is broke. Shekinah says Tiny treats her like a friend one minute and an employee the next and it gets confusing to her. It became obviously confusing when Tiny was pitching a late night talk show ideal to Tip’s agent. She continued to speak out of turn and irritated TIP’s agent by doing so. I sat there in disbelief as Tiny actually explained herself to Shekinah instead of putting her in her place. TI said it best you can be my friend for free or do your job and accept your salary and the perks that comes along with this agreement. What do you think about this?
